Benefits Of Solar In Detroit


There are multiple reasons that you should consider solar panels for your Detroit home. There are not only potential financial benefits, but there are also environmental factors and the potential for a major return on your investment.

  1. Own Your Power — You can reduce your vulnerability to rising energy costs by generating your own electricity and setting up your home to be less reliant on the grid.
  2. Potentially Reduce Your Electric Bill — Energy produced by your solar system could potentially save you thousands of dollars on your electric bills over the years.
  3. Qualify For Federal Tax Credit — Qualified homeowners can currently claim a federal tax credit of up to 26% for installing solar panels on their property.5
  4. Potentially Increase Your Property’s Value — Solar panel systems might increase your home’s value, which could allow you to potentially get an increased return on investment if you choose to sell your home.
  5. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint — Opting to use a clean alternative to fossil fuels can easily reduce your carbon footprint and allow you to do your part to protect our planet.

What Happens To Excess Solar Energy?

During times of peak efficiency, it’s possible that your solar panel system will be producing more energy than you need to keep your home running. In the event that you don’t need all of the electricity that your system produces, there are a couple of ways that you can make sure it isn’t wasted. 

Store excess energy in a backup battery.3

If your panels produce excess energy, the extra power can be stored in your Generac battery backup to be used in the event of a grid power outage or at night when your panels are not producing any electricity. In addition, the stored energy can fill the gaps when your home’s solar panels are not producing at full capacity.

Use excess energy via net metering.

Net metering is the process of sending extra energy that your solar panels produce back to the grid in exchange for credits on future electric bills. If your panels produce extra energy, you can be credited for the energy you sell back (often at a 1-to-1 ratio), meaning that you sell it back at the same price you would buy it. This is a great incentive for using solar energy, but it’s important to note that some utility companies do not offer net metering. Availability, excess credits and other requirements vary by area and utility providers.

Cost Of Solar

Solar energy has become more affordable for Detroit homeowners in recent years! However, the cost of a solar system varies depending on your home, your energy usage and your energy goals. With the help of our experts, you can create a solution for your home that will include how many solar panels you need to keep your home running.

The cost of solar panels is calculated based on dollars per watt. We calculate the number of panels you need based on the number of watts your home typically uses. Once we have that number, we can effectively design a custom solar solution for your home.
